Standard & Poor's Equity Research reiterated a "hold" rating on eBay (nasdaq: EBAY - news - people ) after a report that Chief Executive Meg Whitman had interviewed to head The Walt Disney Co. (nyse: DIS - news - people ) but withdrew her candidacy. S&P Equity Research said, "Although we do not believe Whitman is actively pursuing departure from eBay at this point, we think new questions and uncertainty about her long-term future with the company will add to the negative sentiment we see swirling around the auction firm."
